BY DR. MAX COOPER– Senate Bill 69, now metamorphosed into its second Hawaii Senate draft, has passed the Senate and is scheduled for its first of three committee hearings in the House, 9:30 am March 14, 2013, in the House Public Safety Committee (PBS), Chaired by Rep. Henry Aquino.
HRA supports it but does recommend an amendment. NRA however opposes it and has advised its members to send testimony in opposition.

A big mahalo to all you activists who support our gun rights during this difficult legislative session. Don’t let up before it’s over, May 2! Dead bills can be resurrected and all bills introduced this year are alive next year.
